Wish you owned an exotic supercar? Now you can with XLR8!
XLR8 (pronounced accelerate) is an exciting new app from 2XL Games that makes your car sound like an exotic supercar as you drive!
Connect your iPhone, iPod or iPad to your car stereo and you are off and running.
Once secured inside your vehicle, XLR8 uses the accelerometers of your device to realistically respond to acceleration, braking and cornering forces.
Select from one of five exciting engines:
- Classic V8 muscle car
- NASCAR engine
- Ford GT40
- Ferrari sports car
- Lamborghini Supercar
The App comes with the Classic V8 muscle car. Use in app purchases to unlock the others, or save almost 50% when you purchase the 4-pack!
Dazzle your friends when you roll into the parking lot with the sound of a lumbering muscle car.
Each engine realistically delivers the thrill of driving a different type of supercar.
Uses Hollywood quality recordings of the real engines to sound totally authentic.
Tune the performance of your engines by adjusting the shift point and gear ratios.
Sound like you are burning out your tires and drifting without driving recklessly.
Supports both cabled and wireless Bluetooth audio connections to your car stereo.
Automatic Mode measures the acceleration of your car and Manual Mode lets you control the engine by hand.
XLR8 works well with any device, but works best with a GPS.
Drive the car of your dreams – XLR8
When using XLR8 with a Bluetooth audio connection, you may experience latency.

Ratings and Reviews
Pros: fun app. Great engine sound. Base price for app ok
Cons: hard to get it “dialed in” to somewhat match the drive of my car
Not very responsive to accelerometer on phone
Purchased the other engine sounds and will not successfully download. Retried multiple times with cellular data and WiFi. Will try a few more times then request refund for the other engines.
Driving at highway speeds and when dropping elevation, simulated engine would downshift and hold in first gear until going up a hill. A bit wonky
I have to laugh at the negative reviews. I use it on an electric ebike with a Bluetooth speaker in order to give it noise. The app works beautifully. The other solutions in order to accomplish this would cost hundreds of dollars. I just wish the developer would develop a jet engine noise which would be a more appropriate noise for an E bike. Could you please do that? As for the people who complain about restoring purchases, they should know that all Apple apps work the same way. You have to click to buy it again but Apple then always gives you a pop-up notice that says you don’t have to pay for it again because you have already purchased it. The fact that so many people criticize the app over something that they should understand is truly pathetic.
Also lost my cars, was free to redownload
After the update, I lost all my cars. Worked great before. Still works great with just the free car, but I want all my cars back. When I get them I will change to 5 stars.
Emailed the company and Miguel was very helpful. He informed me that as long as I use the same iTunes account that originally purchased the cars it would not charge me. I tried it and at first it does look like it will charge you, but after you input your iTunes password a pop-up window says that you have already purchased it and can download it for free. I got all my cars back.
